Today is a little bit works in progress, a little bit random/behind the scenes. This is what happens when projects get a little carried away and look to take longer than intended.

The hobby project that's turning into a big hobby project has been a trio of MDF houses. There's aTirahse Comfortable Women's PU Solid Lace-up Square Closed Toe Kitten-Heels Pumps-shoesSkechers Womens Burst 2.0 - Sunny Side Textile Trainers 4-house set for Walking Dead PRETTYHOMEL Fashion Ballerina Flats Women Leather Ballet shoes Rollable Foldable Travel Flats Pregnant shoes for LadyEdv0d2v266 Women's Fashion Casual Pointed Toe Loafer Ballet Flats Slip On shoesof which I picked up 3 during a sale at some point or another. As my theater project got delayed (more on that some other time) I thought I'd just whip out these 3 houses. My method of whipping takes a while.

I've long been hesitant to paint MDF as stories of it drinking up paint are legendary. I've not really experienced it myself, but I've really been limited what I paint. The kits as they come are fairly plain. I went my favored route for home and instead of trying to paint interior walls, Dream Bridge Kids Girls Cozy Fuzzy Reversible Sequin Slipper Socks Indoor Bling Slippers Warm Fleece-Lined Indoor Non-Slip Magic Sequin Sock shoes Birthday SocksTOGIC Elegant Comfortable Women's Elegant Patent Leather Rhinestone Pointed Toe Dress Slip On Pumps Stiletto Kitten Heels shoesI went by Home Depot and picked up paint sample cards for Behr paint. These specific cards are really good for what I need. They're sized to cover most walls. There's a variety of colors. Nobody in Home Depot seems to notice or mind when I grab 4 samples of 10 colors and merrily walk out without buying anything.

I've learned the method that works best for me is to glue the card to the wall and then cut and trim the excess. Before this, I dry-fit everything together (this will come in important on that theater project story for some other time) to make sure I get rooms with the same color.DolphinGirl Women Fashion Loafers Comfy Sneaker Cute Slipon shoes SH-CY00460DolphinGirl Women Fashion Glitter Silver Pointy Toe 12CM High Heels Dress Pumps Stiletto shoes SM00104 WeiPoot Women's Round-Toe Low-Heels PU Pull-On Solid Pumps-shoesAmoonyFashion Women's Soft Leather Round Closed Toe Solid Boots with AdornmentOnce the glue dries, excess is trimmed so the walls will fit flush, or as flush as I can make them, with each other and the floor. I tend to get a little overboard with the color choices. My house has tan (Gourmet Mushroom) walls throughout, but here I pick a different color for every room. It's colorful, if nothing else.

Interior window openings have been tricky in the past, with lots of mistakes learned. Just a square opening, thank you square hole punch, doesn't look right. Windows have trim. I tried a couple of craft-stick, fine - square toothpick - frames with 45 ° corners, HANGGE& Cute Cat Warm Boots Women Family Christmas Cotton Winter shoes Women BootHANBINGPO Clear PVC Transparent Pumps Sandals Perspex Heel Stilettos High Heels Point Toes Party Nightclubbut my Bamboo Womens Lolli-02 Jellys Flip Flop Sandals wasn't making consistent, flush cuts. Being lazy, I opted for and old fashioned square frame with longer top and bottom, and the sides are trimmed to fit between. With transparency film cut to fit the window and glued in before the paint card, it all makes for a decent window.

With the walls dry-fit into the base, I went ahead and glued all the walls together with some wood glue and let it all set for a day. Now it's ready for the next step. Ah, the next step. What is the next step? Notice the lack of doors?

I learn from my mistakes! Sometimes. The outer doors have openings for windows, WeenFashion Womens Round Closed Toe Low Heels PU Short Plush Solid Boots Belt BuckleAerosoles Womens Gravity Ankle Bootso I'll likely go the transparency film + toothpick frame route for those. The interior doors are very plain. I'm currently planning on printing out some door textures and gluing them on. Door textures may not be the proper term. There's some nice pics of interior doors on the Home Depot website that I'll likely be cropping and printing. I use Home Depot a lot for this stuff. Maybe I can get a sponsorship?

There's some other little details I'm going to print out and see how they look, but I'll save further explanation until we see if it's worth it. The one part I will mention is how the floors of these 3 houses work horribly for house floors. While I'm tempted to just print out floors, Capezio Demi Pointe T Pointe shoesYork Zhu Slippers - Winter House Slippers Funny shoes Winter Yellow Super Lightwhich is Plan B, I'm going to see how 1mm felt works as a carpet replacement. That's crazy, you say. Home Depot doesn't have 1mm felt! That's true. Hobby Lobby has felt!

Seeing as it took the better part of 2 weeks to get walls covered in color and glued, I'm not really sure how long to expect this next phase to take.

Segueing from Home Depot, it's clearance time of year. While I always drop in for coupon usage on Opr7 Macaw Parred Pineapple and Flowers Running shoes Lightweight for Women Sneaker Lace-Up Fashion I'll also wander the aisles looking for anything with a red sticker that I might one day use. This year that included some Brier Patch flock and a couple of water effects.T-JULY Women's Ballet Flat Pointed Toe Slip On Soft shoesAlerghrg 3cm Low-Heeled Pointed Toe Pumps Footwear Buckle Sandals Yellow Black Khaki Wine Red d1038 Opr7 Camo Air Force Aircraft Running shoes Lightweight Mens Sneaker Workout Shock AbsorbingI've yet to do much with water effects but if I keep Opr7 Boat Navy Anchor Running shoes Lightweight for Women Sneaker Rubber Sole Soft Sole I'm going to try something or other before long. I picked up some random odds and ends while roaming the aisles, too. I was starting to run out of the Sand & Mud pigment that I use, so instead of using my coupon on primer I picked up pigment. I also picked up a couple of random packs of wood pieces, because sometimes I just need random wood pieces.

After watching BARKOR Garden shoes Clogs Mens Womens Ultra Light Summer Aqua Breathable Comfort Slippers Outdoor Unisex Water shoes I decided to pick some up. Most people talk about how these paints work well for painting lots of minis quickly, although the colors tend to come out flat and in pastels. The thing I noticed is that these paints seem to work well with skin tones and fabric.Women's Wedge Slippers Fashion Rhinestone Slip On Beach shoes Sandals SlippersProDIgal Women's Sports shoes - Casual Leather Lightweight Running shoes WENDYWU Women's Sneakers shoes Low All White Sport shoesI paint a lot of skin tones and fabric! Contrast paints are described as a thick wash. I like to paint with a wash!

I made a list of the colors I would be most likely to use and headed out to The Deep to get what I could. They had 7 colors in stock. 5 of them were colors I wanted, so I picked them up. From there I went to the Warhammer Store, and discovered they were closed on Tuesdays. Luckily, Adam at work mentioned a Warhammer sale of some type at JCs House of Cards. I thought they were mainly a Magic The Gathering & card games of that ilk shop. Facebook listed Warhammer in their stock, so I took advantage of social media and asked if they carried/had in stock any contrast paint. They replied "yes, we have them all". That afternoon, I saw they did indeed have them all. And then I may have left with too many. But they had them all!

I'm going to practice with these on some Zombicide minis that will never see the light of day, just to get a feel for how they work.

With all the Walking Dead minis I've gotten over the past couple of years, I've been racking up Mantic Points/Proof of Purchase. The Mantic web store had some more things in stock, so I finally got my points together and placed an order. I needed 40 pts, which I managed to get together - I had to raid a couple of not-yet-opened boosters. I'm not sure I've ever mailed anything to England, but I visited my local USPS to ensure I had everything packed, addressed, and properly paid. Sometime in the next 3 weeks they should receive my points. Hopefully in the ensuing 3 weeks I'll get my point paid booty.
